Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation – Tutorial on Creating a Window Greenhouse


The Tentacle doesn’t usually make formal posts on Sunday, but due to the unusual circumstances we find ourselves in we are suspending that today to share something time sensitive. 

Since students will be home for the next few weeks, when we came across a Tweet from the Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation on creating your own window greenhouse, we thought our readers and their children might find this fun.

In the video linked here, you and your child will find a four minute tutorial on how to build your own window greenhouse.  You will be invited to follow along with MAEF for the next two weeks and check their progress. 

Hopefully you have decided to build your own mini green house and will participate (with your parents’ consent) to post the observations you make on your own mini greenhouse project.  We also invite you to post them on our Facebook page so we can see your progress too.

Remember tune in here every day for the next two weeks. 

Also check out the MAEF website for other cool and educational, agricultural things.

You’re welcome, Mom… Dad… Grandma… Aunt Sally… 😉

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
